Trainings provided by PHENOMIN focuse on usage of technologies and transfert of the best methods covering our know-how in rat and mouse model creation, disease investigationzootechny and good practices in animal research. The courses are typically CPD courses and workshop open to the research community. Stay informed and subscribe to our newsletter.

Moreover, we propose on-site training and hands-on training, and some webinars throught our partnerships. As part of the training course, upon request, the PHENOMIN infrastructure can offer a tour of the animal facility. Otherwise our scientists can come to your site to train your teams, offering theoretical courses or practical demonstrations, as close as possible to your needs. 

The current trainings cover the following topics

PHENOMIN organizes a biannual special event, a 4 days European School dedicated to the best practices in the use of the mouse model for biomedical and basic research. The school provides a wealth of information on good practices in the use of mouse model (experimental design, ethics, regulations, analysis, data and resources ...) to support attendees in their research. This will be clearly adapted for the Innovative Training Network, and specifically the European Training Networks. See the program of the next 2019 edition:

WEBINAR Series: Transgenic Mouse and Rat Model Creation

January 22 - 1, 2019, on line

G. Pavlovic, head of the genetic engineering department of PHENOMIN-ICS, had presented a serie of webinars:

PHENOMIN works with you from concept to model creation using homologus recombination, latest CRISPR/Cas9 and RNAi technology, and either other trangenic technics to deliver the most relevant model for your application. The effective research with rodent models depends on finding the best appropriated model for your project. How can we help you? Request a quote or email us.

3rd European Advanced School for Mouse Phenogenomics

May 20 - 24, 2019, Goersdorf, Alsace, France

Would you like to learn how to choose, create and analyse your best mouse model?

Do you have a sufficient background in mouse functional genomics to lead as best your research?

PHENOMIN, in collaboration with Infrafrontier, supports researchers who use mouse models by giving us the opportunity to take part to the biennial Edition of the Advanced School in Mouse Phenogenomics.

  • Come to the heart of Europe to be involved - together with other students and researchers from all over the world - in opened discussion, in constructive analysis of your own research and in building conceptual scientific advances.
  • The school covers the different fields of mouse phenogenomics, ranging through 5 topics from state-of-the-art mouse genetics, mutagenesis, mouse colony management, phenotyping human diseases and data management (statistical approaches).
  • This unique international event will provide the attendees with a wealth of information on good practices in the use of mouse model (experimental design, ethics, regulations, analysis, data and resources ...) to support attendees in their research.
